    Solved: Time Zone not correct on Linux (HomeTroller Zee S2)

    After going into the "Setup" menu and setting the time zone info and pressing save, the from and to times always said: Location (Sunrise 3:26 PM Sunset 12:07 AM) Current Time: Thursday, January 28, 2021 4:23 AM. which was not correct. I am in the "Mountain" time zone.

    After reading other posts, I suspected the time zone in the Linux O/S was not set properly.

    To fix this, go to Tools/Linux/Linux Tools on the HomeSeer menu and login.

    User: homeseer
    Password: (Is the password, you first entered, when setting up your HomeSeer)

    I then entered my time zone using a Linux command. Here is the exact syntax to set my Zee S2 to "Mountain" time.

    sudo timedatectl set-timezone Canada/Mountain

    then press <Execute>

    Then reboot.
